Question about Graphics Cards

Amazing Boot problem !!

I have a problem with a driver 2 startup..
Sometimes it boots properly and sometimes : "After booting the monitor dos'nt display the desktop.. instead it looses display..'

When i repair my installation using the 2000 fast repair.. it repairs some driver that loads @ d startup and i am able to boot into 2000.

this problem occured with WindowsXp also but since there was no option to fast repair the boot ..XP always started the entire setup again... repeated setups also do not solve the problem....so i tried to test using windows 2000 professional...

I have come to know that somhow .... a boot fie gets corrupted .. (!!!) so that i have to fix it at every boot....

now tell me how this will fix up.. 1. my graphics driver is not corrupt since after fixing install it works fine........2. RAM is not faulty....ihave tested it...3. I have a P3 800Mhz 256MB RAM 82810E board..

    do you have a sepparate graphics card in your system or do you have it onboard?



    do you have a brand a serial nr. for both mainboard and graphics card, or maybe just computer brand and model...

    There are many, many drivers in a computer system. Without detailed information about your system and which drivers you have no one can solve this problem.

GeForce 8500 GT installation problrm


Try looking for a message in the BIOS startup screen usually delete or an "F(X)" something button i.e. F1 or F2 That says it will let you chose your boot device. If you can than press that and chose the hard disk option. If it doesnt let you or it doesn't work than theres probably something wrong with your hard drive and I doubt it has much to do with your video card unless the driver caused it. In that case try starting your computer in safe mode by pressing F8 after the BIOS startup and selecting safe mode and then uninstalling the driver from the change/remove applications part of the control panel. Of course if none of that works you could just yell and swear at HP until they help you. :)

good luck

No signal to monitor


  1. Verify card is seated properly.
  2. Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
  3. Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
  4. Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
  5. Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
  6. Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
  7. Verify the monitor cable is good.
  8. (Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)

No signal on first boot


This would usually indicate that there is a problem that is causing your computer to not boot correctly all of the time. What you have described could be many different problems and without more information I cannot say which one it is.

1. Hard drive. I have ran into Hard Drives that for some reason do not start up correctly right away when you put power to them. This can cause the initial startup to hang possibly indefinitely.
2. Video Card. Something probably firmware is causing your video card to not start up properly when power is first applied.
3. PSU. The power supply could cause similar problems if it cannot supply enough power because the highest power draw is when you first turn on the computer. When you push the reset button the power is already being supplied to most of the components and the ones that did not have enough power to start properly before can do so now.
4. CPU. If the CPU has some minor problems it can cause similar problems. In any case to fix it you can try clocking down the CPU but you are better off replacing it.
5. RAM. I have had similar problems with RAM. Clocking down the RAM fixed the issue.
6. Settings in BIOS. I would check to make sure the setting for init display on boot is set for PCI-e.

Stripy Boot Up


is it a new graphic card? Sometimes that happens when the graphic card gets overheated and fries up some chips. and sometimes those lines appear when the graphic card has fault in Direct Draw. Try setting your BIOS settings to default. if it doesn't work, i recommend you to take the graphic card to the nearest hardware tech ;)

Installing AGP video card


Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)


There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando
